The first step of learning how to fly is realising that you can!!

Clicked this picture of a lapwing chick at Ranthambore. It was so exciting to see this chick fluttering her wings, eager to fly!!

Lessons from Nature #1

#Patience #LessonsfromNature #Photography #Motivation #RohanKhandelwal

When I started doing bird photography, there used to so many instances when the bird used to fly away just as I was about to click it or the picture used to come out hazy. It was frustrating initially and many times I thought that I will never get a chance to click that particular bird again. But, with time I realized that patience does pay off.
This quote by Aristotle is so true “Patience is bitter but it’s fruit is sweet”. This is exactly what wildlife photography has taught me. There is a right time for everything and only after a lot of patience and hard work, does that moment arise.
So don’t lose hope and keep working towards your goal. Be patient when you are going through a rough patch, because ultimately you will come out on top. When the right moment comes, it will be magical…just like this pic!!

Sprinkle Joy & Happiness

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”  – Thich Nhat Hanh

Sprinkling Joy

I clicked this picture during my visit to a resort. It was fascinating to capture the water sprinkler spreading drops of water (joy for the grass and plants) all over the place.

As a Breast Cancer Surgeon, I have realised that we might not be able to treat a patient’s problem always but a simple smile and some words of encouragement can go a long way in helping the patient tackle her problems.

Photo details: Early morning picture on the banks of river Cauvery at Coorg. The picture highlights the various shades of green and the perfect reflection of the fallen log on the river surface.  Perfect place and setting for introspection.
